Organic '12 + Bongo Java FREEBIE! 30 winners!

I'm so excited to announce this Organic '12 Freebie! THERE WILL BE 30 WINNERS! Yes! Bongo Java, a wonderful local Nashville coffee shop chain is GENEROUSLY donating THIRTY bags of their  ORGANIC FAIR TRADE award winning Mystic Brew blend for you to win!
 Look at these lovely beans…
And, that's not all. You would think 30 bags of coffee would be enough, but, we also have FIVE Green Bag Lady shopping bags up for grabs. These are not our usual bags, they are made from upcycled Bongo Java coffee bags. We love us some upcycled bags around here…
 And you can see the great printing on the burlap, some of them even say organic, free trade, YAY!
This is how it will go down:

10 winners will be from Nashville
10 winners will be from Tennessee outside Nashville
10 winners will be from anywhere else in the USA

The 5 bag winners will be randomly chosen from the 30 coffee winners above. So you may get BOTH!

Confused yet? Hope not.

Here is what you need to do to enter this awesome freebie:

Hi, Teresa! Thank you for what you're doing! It's a really great thing to use these bags of yours instead using plastic bags that are harmful for our Earth. Keep doing this and then more people will think seriously about environment protection. I'm eager to get a bag from you. Thank you once again!
